In general appearance this species resembles branching specimens of the £7. longi-
fiora, Bunge, of the Altai; it has, however, a more branched prostrate stem, and has
not a bulbous root, nor the sheathing scales at the base of the petioles; it has also
much larger sepals, winged upper petals, and more slender pods. Griffith's speci-
mens are in an exceedingly unsatisfactory state, and may possibly be made np of
more than one species. Of these his n. 1752 is neither in flower nor fruit, and
n. 1152 has very young flowers and imperfect pods: the flowers are smaller than
in the Sikkim specimens, their spurs shorter, and the wing on the lateral petals
broader.
